Getting Data In

How to get JSON objects from java inputstream into splunk?

I have a java program that creates JSON objects from a java input stream. I would like to have these JSON objects indexed in splunk, but don't want to have to write a bunch of files. What is the best way to do this? I know how to write the props.conf to parse the JSON object, but I'm not sure which input to use to get the data into splunk.

I am currently using splunk Enterprise 6.6, with plans to upgrade to 7.0

That seems to do the parsing. I can just use props.conf to extract the fields. I'm more looking at the mechanism to get the data into splunk so it can be parsed/indexed. So like should i use a Kafka input or HTTP Collector maybe or is there some other easy way to have splunk read from a stream?
